On second thoughts, I do want another guide dog!

So, well, I said earlier in a post that I was looking to get a retired guide dog, and that I didn’t feel I had enough work for a dog to do and that is why I wasn’t thinking about getting a new guide dog.

Well, I talked to my friend pat, and I had a nice chat with him.

He encouraged me, along with one of my blogging buddies, willow, to maybe ask about applying for another dog.

I know you have to have work for them, but I think there are dogs too who like a more laid back sort of life, with minimal work.

I would have enough work for a dog where I could take him or her out walking every day, and as long as the dog is exercised, and I have enough routes to do with him or her, that the dog doesn’t get bored, I think they’ll approve me for a new dog.

Of course I’ll have to get a medical done, but I think I’ll pass that with flying colours.

I’m excited now!

I wonder how long it will take to get approved, and then how long I’ll have to wait before a suitable match comes up?

Hopefully not too long!

I’m hoping to talk to someone at the school tomorrow, and get the ball rolling!

I’ll keep you all posted!

  1. Oh! Hooray and well done! I am sure you’d have enough work for your dog to do. The dog will make you do even more and make you independent. Our Ruby is a retired Guide Dog we walked her on her free exercise walks from when she started work. She retired at six, it’s usually ten but we have had her six and a half years now. She’s the best dog in the world. I really hope you get one and soon 💜💜💜

    1. I hope so too Willow, I love dogs and I especially love my current one and I will be heartbroken when anything happens to him but I can’t be without a dog either. I need a dog in my house in my life. I just need an animal to love, and who will love me. 💖💖💜💜
